Product Description

Born in Bermuda, Mishka lived with his parents on a sailboat from the age of three onwards. Lyrically, his favorite similes are of the sea – he has a bulging notebook of "ocean songs." In conversation, he looks back without evident nostalgia or myth-making on an early life growing up at sea. While other children were glued to the television and video games, Mishka was offered endless hours in which to reflect, draw, read and write.

Fast-forward to the present, and you find a man in his mid-twenties whose songs sound like the work of a young Sam Cooke mixed with shades of Bob Marley and that indefinable something that heralds a great pop record. Attempting to analyze that "X factor" only adds to the mystery. As Mishka reminds us: "People always check out your influences, but you don’t really know what your influences are. It might be a bird singing while you’re walking down the street or a breeze going past you. That could be what makes you want to write a song."
